On Oct. 28, the National Capital Chapter convened a membership meeting at Pioneer Hall, National Electronics Museum, in Linthicum, Maryland. The meeting was a huge success. The number attending was 50, including 11 students from Morgan State University Student Chapter. Northrop Grumman sponsored the meeting space, hors d'oeuvres, and soft drinks.
Presentations by Assistant Professor Jeffrey W. Herrmann, University of Maryland, and David Rizzardo, Lean expert at the Maryland Technical Extension Service (Mtech) were excellent and both speakers engaged attendees with provocative statement and questions for the audience.
Both speakers provided convincing presentations on the benefits of lean thinking during the layout design of a facility and how it leads to higher revenue and happier customers (and in some cases survival of the business).
